Just the Daddy I wanted

A blog post from CJ filled with “awwww”:

One busy December morning, Mark was helping Lucy get ready to leave for preschool. Now, Lucy had been zipping her coat up by herself for a week or so at this point, but I noticed out of the corner of my eye that he was kneeling down by her and showing her something with her zipper. Later that afternoon, Lucy insisted that I watch her zip up her winter coat all by herself. After carefully pulling the zipper up to the top while also pulling her head away from the zipper, she explained the significance of what I had just witnessed:

“Daddy showed me how to zip up my coat so my lip wouldn’t get caught in it. He’s just amazing.”

I smiled, “Yes, he is.”

Lucy nodded, “Yep. He’s the daddy that I wanted.”
